My second day of the month long challenge is my 'girl with the fan' painted to celebrate Chinese new year. I found this very cool border on Pixlr, I presume it says Happy New Year... ( My understanding of Chinese is I'm sure you have guessed rather limited) I love oriental Art, all those rich reds and golds. This piece is on watercolour board and is neo-crayon and gouache with a little gold textures paint for her robe. I was inspired by a famous Monet painting La japonaise which shows his wife wearing a beautiful robe celebrating all things oriental.
Thanks to all who popped by yesterday and wished my daughter a happy birthday! ( The handbag cake was very well received and very tasty )
